I had the same problem with my 19 year old son. My advice is to contact the college & speak to his head of course or learning support department. As your son is over 16 the college will not discuss his personal course work but if you make them aware of your concerns they can then discuss it with your son and see what he is doing. You have so much riding on this so you’ve nothing to loose & I found the college to be very supportive.
